Civil Rights icon: Trump's profane comments about immigrants were 'despicable'

S--HOLE COUNTRIES’ President Trump is under fire for comments on immigrants from Haiti El Salvador and African nations. According to reports Trump asked ‘Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who've been close allies to the president on the issue of immigration, were in a White House meeting with him Thursday when Trump, according to sources, expressed frustration with people coming to the USA from "sh-hole countries". Apparently, he was so frustrated with the U.S.'s lottery system that he demanded to know why other Americans would want people coming over from "shithole countries", like Haiti, El Salvador and various African nations.

Controversy is swirling about claims that President Donald Trump made a vulgar comment about struggling countries and their immigrants.

President Trump tweeted he never said anything derogatory about Haitians, other than Haiti is a very poor and troubled country.

But while Wenger confirmed he expected the situation to be resolved soon, he said he did not know what the final outcome would be. Mesut Ozil was also missing because of injury and Arsenal's lineup looked a shadow of the past teams under Wenger.

The Republican president has also privately defended his remarks, saying he was only expressing what many people think but will not say about immigrants from economically depressed countries, the Associated Press reported. "Why do we want people from Haiti here?"

"We were deeply disturbed and offended by President Trump's remarks regarding Haiti and African countries", the Democrats said in a joint statement. At a meeting discussing immigration with U.S. Senators, Trump referred to developing nations with brown-skinned citizens as "shithole countries", according to multiple sources.

His promise is now in question after the comments allegedly made during a private immigration meeting with lawmakers.

Border Wall Must Be Part of DACA Deal
Trump gave Congress six months to find a way to allow immigrant approved for the DACA program to remain in the USA permanently. But some of those issues will likely have to wait due to the sense of urgency running through these discussions.

Haitian President Jovenel Moise's government issued a strongly worded statement denouncing what it called a "racist" depiction of Haiti. "Nothing that Donald Trump says can change that".

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

Trump reportedly became frustrated during the Oval Office meeting, asking: "Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?". "Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime. countries which are doing badly". I will not be diverted from all possible efforts to continue negotiating to stop the deportations.
